Runtime Variables

Perhaps I can't find it...

Are there runtime variables available to the workflow?

For instance, current OpSys datetime, current User, OpSys details (network, memory, etc)... similar as to what is provided by most databases or by querying the OpSys.

I looked at the functions and they don't seem to give me a way to access the above either.

I don't think that KNIME provides access to these variables directly, but you could use a Java Snippet node and query something like System.getenv(...) to find out the values of OS environment variables. It should be possible to write these values into KNIME workflow variables if needed.

Hope this helps,

Correction: There is an "Extract System Properties"-node that might help.


Thank you!!
